Yea, we had a sherrif deputy get shot and killed while responding to a 911 call last week, his backup deputy shot the killer dead but the deputy was 23, wife 8 months pregnant. So it is kind of raw around here these days. I know cops are doing a job and I know there are bad ones the same as any profession but to do a job that people attempt to kill you every day gives me lots of respect for what they do. Also have some friends that are cops.

BTW, the TPD is about 30% AA officers, as is the sherrifs dept and almost 100% of the FA&M police dept. so he may not have been pulled for DWB.
